PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM UV RAYS WITH OBAGI!

We have all heard of UV rays and how they are harmful to our bodies but what many people do not know is that there are two types of UV rays known as UVA and UVB. My patients which I follow with a Obagi360 ® or Obagi-C ® Systems or Obagi Nu-Derm ® know how it is important to use the correct sunscreen protection. Omnce again, not all of them are sufficiently effective to protect your skin

These rays affect the body in the same way ,but UVA is able to penetrate deeper into the skin. Therefore, it is important to protect yourself against these harmful rays on a consistent basis and not just when the sun is out!

These rays are the cause of sunburn, brown spots (sun spot), rapid ageing of the skin and an enlarged risk of skin cancer. Patients who start having dark spots , more they wait to treat it more those spots get deeper and harder to treat to remove them.

However, there is no need to fear! With the Sun Protection range from Obagi, your skin is guaranteed to look younger and radiant with long lasting effects!

Depending if you have a dry or sensitive or oily skin or if you want an added antioxidant in the cream or if you prefer a physical sunscreen, a sun protection product that deflects and scatters UV rays instead of absorbing them, Obagi have them all . Also, some of the Obagi sunscreen exist with a tinted version like Obagi Sun Shield Broad-Spectrum SPF50 ; it uses fine particles of Zinc Oxide and Octinoxate to ensure your skin remains healthy and natural, fragrance free for all skin types !

As a reminder, don’t forget , avoid the sun between the hours of 10am – 2pm may to help reducing the risk of premature skin ageing.

Try it out and make sure to protect your skin for a great start in September!

Haiku is a form of poetry, first made popular in Japan, which has become appreciated
around the world. In Japan these poems are valued for their simplicity, openness, depth and lightness.

with only 3 sentences, haikus are incredibly modern. They embrace perfectly our modernity with a fast and short communication style while on the same time it invites us practicing to pause in the moment and cultivate a sense of awareness, compassion and peace.

Haikus are an instant photography of a moment or an emotion.

WANT BEAUTIFUL HAIR ? TRY MESOTHERAPY

Do you feel like your hair has become dull and shineless? Do you spend countless hours searching for the miracle product that will restore your hair’s lost beauty?

Then try mesotherapy for hair beautification! The benefits of Mesotherapy for hair include the restoration of your hair’s health and shine, and can even aid with hair loss problems, such as Alopecia.

How does Mesotherapy work? Mesotherapy is a non-surgical technique that consists of microinjections in your target tissues, to stimulate the mesoderm. This relieves a wide variety of symptoms and conditions of the hair.

Mesotherapy brings around the hair follicle a broad range of vitamins, minerals, nucleic acids and co-enzymes so that the hair follicle can grow and survive through correct blood circulation and the excess of DHT (Dyhydrotestosterone) is neutralised.
This treatment also stimulates natural hair growth, with chances of good results for patients being higher than 90%. As hair loss is provoked by hormone imbalances, lack of nutrients and bad blood circulation, mesotherapy is able to restore the essential nutrients that the hair follicles need.

At theLondonFacialCare, I use the U225 Mesogun. That allows the rapid replacement of plasma into the scalp, making it a painless procedure with very minimal discomfort. How long does mesotherapy take to work? It depends with every patient but results can be noticed after the second session. Patients usually resume their daily activities right after injection, making it a simple routine they can adopt in their lives.

CAN ALOPECIA BE CURED ?

Alopecia is a hair loss condition, and is a terminology that refers to different forms of hair loss, both scarring and non-scarring ones.

Alopecia is usually caused by differing factors. These range from physical and emotional stress, imbalance of nutrients and vitamin deficiencies as well as hormone imbalances. It can also be due to hereditary factors, when expressed in many male pattern baldness.

However, here at TheLondonFacialCare, we are able to treat non-scaring alopecia as well as prevent it. Often referred to as Alopecia Areata, this condition is reversible with the right aesthetic treatments.

I am able to treat localised areas of hair loss (patches) that still have the hair follicle bulb intact, by using Plasma Therapy (PRP). This treatment has shown that up to 70% of patients do experience extra hair growth from active follicles.

But what is so special about the PRP technique? Well, growth factor molecules associated with platelets include the promotion of growth, collagen differentiation and even specialised formation of the blood vessel.

Side effects are also very minimal. With minimum discomfort during the procedure, our patients experience a noticeable reduction in hair loss. Fine miniaturised hair starts to thicken and this is usually noticeable by three months since the first application. So patients find their hair easier to manage, thicker and in better condition. Patients are highly satisfied with the results and continue to have maintenance treatments every six months.

So why not consider PRP with us for a hair regrowth treatment? It is a safe and effective treatment for hair thinning and we are sure you won’t be disappointed!

DOES PRP WORK FOR HAIR LOSS ?

Does PRP work for hair loss? Hair loss therapy and hair loss treatments are one of the most sought for treatments on the market, often misleading patients who really want to fix hair loss problems.

Patients tend to be disillusioned with hair growth treatments, as they have usually attempted some which haven’t worked or think that hereditary conditions determine the outcome of any possible treatment.

However, PRP treatment has proved to be effective on natural hair growth at surprising levels. PRP is used as hair loss prevention as well as hair loss treatment. But is it enough to solve the problem on its own?

WHAT TO EAT FOR HEALTHY HAIR ?

Our body needs the right amount of foods with antioxidants to combat what is known as oxidative stress, which highly degrades the production of elastin and collagen in our body and especially our hair!

Oxidative stress is one of the key impacts in our aging process, affecting the pigmentation and production of our hair, as well as the ageing process of the hair follicle.

Therefore, my first advice on what to eat to maintain healthy hair would be to focus on a higher intake of green vegetables and fruits such as berries, especially green leaf diets composed of spinach and kale! By adopting a healthy lifestyle, not only will you look younger, but you can avoid Alopecia diseases and maintain beautiful hair for longer!

Secondly, our body needs healthy and stable levels of fat to maintain our cell structure and function. Fat makes our hair more elastic and produces the essential oils needed for your scalp. Eating good fats such as avocados and sweet potatoes, rather that refined carbohydrates that are found in processed foods is recommended.

And finally, a surprise in for the seafood lovers! Fatty fish such as salmon, shrimps and oysters are game changers for your hair health! As they contain omega-3 fatty acids, they are the perfect excuse to spoil your hair with nutrients!

By improving the way you eat, you are able to reduce the chances alopecia hair loss and neutralise oxidative stress. So by improving your inner health, your hair will look more radiant and refreshed, just in time for the summer!

BOB HAIR STYLE FOR SUMMER 2018 !

With summer at our doorsteps, it is time to showcase our beautiful hair under the sun! So let’s get inspired by beautiful celebrities and the latest hair trend of 2018, which is the bob hairstyle trend!

If you do end up going for this audacious and stunning short look, make sure you don’t go half way and do it like Emma Stone! She looks amazing in her shapely bob. The shapely fringe and hoppy ends makes this a killer look!

Otherwise, if you’re feeling a little more retro, you can also opt for Katy Perry’s 50’s bob style! She completely pulls it off, making this a flirty fun look!

For a more minimalist look, Emma Roberts has the bob hairstyle on lock! The angular cut of the crop along with the weeping fringe gives the bob a more mature and professional look.

And how about an extra level of chic added to the equation? Alicia Vikander completely rocks the bob hairstyle by parting it on the centre, with subtle wavy curls effortlessly tumbling.

So don’t be scared of the short look! The bob hairstyle hasn’t trended this year for no reason! Dare to be different this summer and create some different but easy summer hairstyles!
